The University of Utah Health has leased a 170,000-sf office building in a mixed-use development in Salt Lake City’s Sugar House neighborhood. The U’s Sugar House Clinic will be the sole tenant, and will offer a wide range of services including primary and preventative care, oncology care, and weight loss services.
Developed by Westport Capital Partners, the Sugar House project will include two office towers and a multi-family residential building. It will also feature below-grade parking that blends with the nearby structures, retail space, a public plaza, and public art and programmable active window displays that will activate the street for pedestrians as they enter the greater Sugar House business district.
“This property was a natural fit for us,” said Wayne Imbrescia, executive director of ambulatory services at U of U Health. “This location accommodates our patients by moving critical services from our hospital campus into the community where it’s more convenient.”
University of Utah Health is the Mountain West’s only academic healthcare system. It includes four hospitals and 12 community clinics with more than 1,400 physicians practicing in about 200 medical specialties.
Greg Geiger, Westport Capital Partners’ principal & portfolio manager, said the new clinic will bring more than 200 employees and hundreds of visitors into the area each day, “infusing the economy and strengthening this growing community.”
The U of U Health building is expected to be complete in mid-2019.
